Bruce Reminded Me of an Old Favorite Song

The other day Bruce mentioned an old favorite song of mine, and I played it a bit ago on my iPad. Smiley Happy

Grandpa
Tell me 'bout the good old days.
Sometimes it feels like
This world's gone crazy.
Grandpa, take me back to yesterday,
Where the line between right and wrong
Didn't seem so hazy.

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
Stand beside each other come what may
was a promise really something people kept,
Not just something they would say
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did daddies really never go away
Whoa oh Grandpa,
Tell me 'bout the good old days.

Grandpa
Everything is changing fast.
We call it progress,
But I just don't know.
And Grandpa, let's wonder back into the past,
And paint me a picture of long ago.

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
Stand beside each other come what may
Was a promise really something people kept,
Not just something they would say and then forget
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did daddies really never go away
Whoa oh Grandpa,
Tell me 'bout the good old days.

Whoa oh Grandpa,
Tell me 'bout the good ole days.

That makes me weak at the knees comrade.  I can imagine you wasting the sunny days on the verandah, dreaming of those days when everyone loved god, men never wavered from the straight and narrow and problems with those undesirables didnt exist.  Oooooh we yearn for those days again. if only the dream would never end.

 


There is nothing more reponsible for the good old days than a bad memory.

That's okay, Colin. I'm just going out the door to head to the High School and watch our baseball team play ball, on the 4th of July, I'll help put up flags around town and watch fireworks with neighbors.

Enjoy your Winter.
